Why Get a HydraFacial Treatment? How Does It Work?

It’s always the right time for glowing, smooth, and healthy-looking skin. If you’re new to HydraFacial, let us introduce this revolutionary treatment that helps combat dull, dry, and poorly textured skin for a rejuvenating glow.

So how does it work, and what should you expect after your first treatment?

How does HydraFacial work?

A HydraFacial is a patented skin treatment, from a device that uses a vortex swirling action to clean away old skin cells, remove dirt deep within your pores, and then hydrate your skin with a special protein-powered serum.

It’s non-invasive with no harsh chemicals or dermabrasion, and it rejuvenates and refreshes your skin, leaving you feeling brand new!

Does it boost collagen production?

Yes. One of the reasons that a HydraFacial treatment is so effective is that it stimulates collagen and elastin production – the two key substances that help keep our skin supple and plump. As we age, our collagen production naturally starts to slow down. And although we see many collagen supplements, shakes, and powders on the market, the majority of studies show that collagen can only be produced from our own bodies, and ingesting supplements tends to be ineffective at boosting collagen levels.

Alongside getting plenty of sleep and eating a healthy diet, HydraFacial treatment is another way to naturally boost collagen production for healthy skin.

What other skin problems can a HydraFacial help to treat?

The power of a HydraFacial is that it’s a great all-rounder and can help all skin types – whether your skin is naturally oily, dry, sensitive, or a combination of all three.

It improves the appearance of skin and combats each of these complaints:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Oily skin
  • Large pores
  • Dry skin
  • Thin skin
  • Ageing skin

What happens during a HydraFacial treatment?

  1. Exfoliation - After your consultation, our therapist will start by using a small device that produces steam to open up the pores in your skin. Using a patented nozzle, she’ll then clean and exfoliate your skin. The device acts like a vacuum to remove dead skin cells and anything else that could be hindering your skin and shouldn’t be there.
  2. Peel - Next comes the peel, which our therapist will customise for you, so you get the best possible results for your skin type. Depending on what you have, you may experience some mild tingling, but this is completely normal and just means that the facial is doing its job.
  3. The deep cleanse - Your face is then ready for the HydraFacial itself. Our therapist will deeply cleanse your pores without irritating your skin so it’s ready for some serious hydration. Using the HydraFacial super serum boosters, your skin receives a burst of moisture, deep into your skin so the antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and peptides can get to work.
  4. Moisture - The final step is moisturiser. A crucial stage delivered by your therapist to give you that long-lasting, healthy, radiant glow that we all love to see in the mirror.
